Three Extremely Rare Deer Spotted In Wisconsin
What a rare and beautiful sight to catch on film! When these Wisconsin natives spot a group of seemingly albino deer wandering in their yard, they couldn't be more thrilled! These graceful creatures sniff at the grass, exchange grunts, taste the plants and even look up to stare directly into the camera at the homeowners filming them!
Despite their all-white appearance, these deer actually aren't albino! They're something known as "Seneca," due to the fact that white herds generally hail from Seneca County, New York. The fascinating and beautiful deer all carry recessive genes that cause their coat to be white, and they pass this trait down from generation to generation!
A true albino deer only occurs in nature 1 out of every 20,000 live births, and finding an entire herd of them living together is unheard of! Wisconsin locals refer to these gorgeous animals as the "white ghost deer" because of their stunning outer appearance and elusive nature! There's even a group in the state dedicated to protecting the "albino" deer.
